Only just becoming available in Europe, and of course the Playstation itself
won't run Linux - you have to add on a box which gives you a hard disk,
keyboard and network interfaces etc. and AFAIR it costs about $300. In the
end, you'll get more bang for the buck and more convenience with a cheap PC.
